Trans Main Drive gear 35065-65B vs 35067-77

I understand from Palmers that the later Main drive gear 35065-65b is interchangeable and actually preferable to the earlier gears. I am wondering what differences exist with the even later gear 35067-77, and whether it may also be directly interchangeable?

The factory changed from a race with 44 loose rollers to essentially a large needle bearing for the main drive gear. The -77 gear is for the needle bearing rather than loose rollers and is not interchangeable ... Perry

Actually the '77 part will fit earlier transmissions but requires all the associated parts. Case bushings, shaft, retainer, etc.

We're talking main drive gear not counter shaft cluster ... Perry
